Columbia, MD -- Consumers are beginning to realize that the products they use leave a lingering “environmental footprint”. They are not simply receiving this message from fringe groups like the so-called “tree huggers” but rather from mainstream media citing real-world examples of successful corporations like PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, 3M, Abbott, Dow Chemical, Johnson & Johnson, and Procter & Gamble which have already implemented far reaching sustainability measures. This trend is apt to continue with more and more companies, either voluntarily or under market and regulatory pressures, implementing sound sustainability systems and procedures – the integration of social, environmental and economic considerations into product, process and energy systems’ design as well as the consideration of impact over the complete product and process lifecycle.

San Luis Obispo, CA – E P Aeration, the leader in sub-surface aeration and water quality management systems, announced the completion of its state-of-the-art wastewater treatment system at Niner Wine Estates, based in Paso Robles, CA. Engineered by Air Diffusion Systems (ADS) of Gurnee, IL, the aeration system is the first of its kind in the wine industry, and is designed to drastically reduce the liabilities and environmental impacts associated with typical onsite winery and agricultural wastewater treatment systems. “EP Aeration’s ADS wastewater treatment system fits perfectly into Niner Wine Estate’s environmental ethic and has helped us score points towards LEED certification,” said Tom Bower, an engineer and representative of Niner Wine Estates, a super-premium winery located on Hwy. 46 West in Paso Robles. “We expect to get certified by the end of 2010 which will make us amongst the first wineries in the state to achieve LEED certification.” “It’s an added bonus that Pacific Gas & Electric is going to rebate a portion of the equipment cost via their Savings By Design program, and we’re saving about $17,000 per year on energy costs.” Unlike surface aerators which “beat” oxygen into the surface of the water, the ADS air diffusers utilized by EP Aeration are bottom-laid, fine-bubble systems which move water from the bottom of the treatment lagoon to the surface, where additional oxygenation takes place. Its fine bubbles not only move the water vertically through the water column, but provide the highest oxygen transfer rates in the industry and oxidize organic wastes as they rise. E P Aeration is the exclusive distributor for ADS systems and engineering in the State of California. The result is high-quality water that is guaranteed to be odorless and meet state mandated water quality requirements while operating at 25% of the electrical requirements of an industry standard surface aerator. Once the water is treated it is sent through a constructed wetland for polishing and finally into a pond where it will be held until it is used to supplement approximately 15% of the estate vineyard’s water demand. The recycled water and energy savings make the system a model of sustainability.
